    Going for the high pitch is a little league move. Sorry if he is OPS'ing or whatever, he looked bad there when we needed him to have a good eye. Something this team just can't resist doing--hacking away.

    I came in late on this one and I should have stayed away, but it's like the car wreck on the side of the road. I cannot resist looking. That's three games since the break we should have won.

    Ross had not hacked at all this game.....he just saw something fast actually coming for Hoffman....and he could not resist. Many hitters have this problem....I had it back in college....so that's why I am here.....posting on RZ.

    Re: Reds vs. Padres 7-21-08

    I also wonder what use Valentin has. How many pitches did he see?

    And Ross is just Ross. He is hitting well this year, so we forgive the rest of his faults. Sad part is there's not much better out there. Javier is the guys who gets my goat. He can't catch, he hacks and he takes up space. He needs to go soon. Bruce is young. He's not there yet but probably will be. The Reds got good at-bats from everyone until Ross' misjudgment and the rest of the gang did what they do best. popup and strike out.

    Guys, I've been a Reds fan forever, but losing them in the 9th after having your $50 million closer pitch batting practice and then loading the bases with no outs and see strikeout on a bad pitch, a pop up on the first pitch, and another strikeout is a little much to take. Forgive my testiness, but this is the reason why this team does not look very good for 2009. Too many parts that don't fit.

    Welsh goes off on the Reds while George pimps Hoffman for the Hall of Fame over and over. Chris almost yells at George. Great theatre.

    the problem was the pitch he swung at almost hit him.

    Forget about george.....he is off on his own trip down...offering no analysis or in depth commentary..EVER. Except when someone sadly passes away.


    In times like these...I wish for the musings of Mike De La Hoz.

    that's what really bothers me about this team, they rarely allow a pitcher to get himself into trouble. They have too many hackers in the lineup and it needs to be addressed. I also think Dusty is a big part of the problem.

    I'm not blaming Dusty because this team has a history long before Dusty. Remember Narron encouraging Dunn to swing more often? One example of folks all over baseball really not understanding baseball. Or something like that.

    Truth is we have the young Bruce, who can be exused because he's so young, Phillips, Encarnacion, Ross, Patterson, Valentin, and sometimes even Votto and Griffey who love to hack at that first pitch. Tonight, Hoffman didn't throw many strikes--I estimated it at 8--but there we were just swinging from the heels. Leave him alone and he walks in the tying runs, but nooo. Unintelligent hitting. OTOH, we had Cordero doing the same thing and what were the Padres doing? Not swinging at those low off the plate pitches and he walks three, finally has to throw one in there and the result was 3 runs. Why can't our guys see this? I have no idea.
